Signature Assignment

This assignment generally requires you to analyze opposing perspectives on an American historical issue set after 1877. Your professor may have changes to this requirement, so always make sure to check the intructions they give you.

Some instructors require you to use a scholarly historical periodical. This means a peer-reviewed article(scholarly) focused on history (historical) from a recognized academic journal (periodical). You can find these using the reccomended databases below. Some instructors may want you to specifically use a newspaper article from the time period you're sudying. AAS Historical Periodicals is a good source for that.

You may also need to use a book. You can search for a book at any of our campus libraries, including ebooks, using the search box below.
